Failed Predictions Of
Astrology Marketer Gianpaolo DiCocco

    
DiCocco Fail #1

'Queen Elizabeth II of England will die by the end of September, 2017.'

In early 2017 astrology marketer GianPaolo DiCocco, sitting in his mom's house in Pasadena, California gained attention and traffic by predicting the death of Queen Elizabeth by the end of September 2017. He was so certain,
he made three different videos emphasizing that it would be true. By October he had to delete them all.
Oops! 

The three YouTube videos were loaded with his usual portentous, bamboozling astrology talk. His gullible public, dazzled by the 'arcane' astrological terms he tosses around, picked up from books, ate it up. In  typical bombastic fashion he named his 3 death-predicting videos a "Trilogy" and the soon-to-bomb ersatz prophecy "historic." He has now purged his fail from the internet, but thousands will remember it, and we are sure some copies will be turning up. Deleting, editing, and blocking comments are how "voice-of-the-cosmos-who-makes-astrology-great-again"manages his prediction fails. Since that new fail DiCocco has turned to inventing the birth date/time of Jesus Christ.  The date is a complete mystery to mankind, with even scholars disagreeing about it for 20 centuries and only able to speculate. So this new shtick is more comfortable for DiCocco. Making a date "fit" an individual, even if it's a total guess and not correct, is an easy trick and any astrologer can invent these propositions. It's perfect for DiCocco because it can't fail or be disproved and he can appear marvelous, to the gullible, for "figuring it out." 

DiCocco got big attention at his YouTube channel by making this prediction. He loves predicting death and dire events -- sensational things -- for the attention it brings him. Though he deleted the three videos after the fail, some video amalgamators still show artifacts of his "historic" prediction, complete with a deleted video icon:


Below: DiCocco didn't post just one video predicting the death of Queen Elizabeth by Sept 2017, but three.
He was Very Certain!



Below:
Note his 3rd video predicting the Queen's death came out in early 2017. While arguing with commenters DiCocco said "It's only a miss if she's still alive by Sept." which referred to September 2017. Some people complained about his failed prediction and its recklessness. DiCocco berated them, saying late September 2017 had not arrived yet. He says:
"A lot of fine tuning goes into this to predict exact dates, which is not easy. Definitely not a miss yet. As I said, it's only a miss if she's still alive by late Sept. [2017]. It really helps to LISTEN."

So apparently the sudden Master Astrologer worked really hard on this one. But all three videos had to come down, and these posts are no longer viewable on YouTube. When DiCocco's predictions fail he either re-writes text associated with the video, or simply deletes the whole thing, to "make astrology great again." Alternatively, he may claim "the birth data was flawed." Yet he is supposed to be the Voice of the Cosmos and can even know things using Tarot cards. His misses keep piling up. Below are some of the posters who noticed his Queen's death miss and complained on his thread about it:



DiCocco Fail #2

'Marine Le Pen  will win the French election.'

Oops!


DiCocco predicted a Le Pen Win multiple times, including in 2 YouTube videos.
In the Facebook post below DiCocco, who is the only one who can "make astrology great," predicts Le Pen anew. He also got "Le Pen wins" from his Tarot Card reading (just to be sure).
   

The snide, pompous DiCocco in his dime store costume hat made sure to mock other astrologers
for predicting Le Pen -- just before he himself jumped on the Le Pen bandwagon.


Above: At the start DiCocco mocked other astrologers for predicting Le Pen. Above he puts the word "astrologer" in quotes for Barry Goddard. He states "I'll tell you right now that Le Pen's natal charts and transits...do NOT look good at all for her." So he's always flip-flopping. After he saw others predicting Le Pen, DiCocco jumped on the Le Pen bandwagon with both feet. He made two videos predicting her. But in the above post the "voice of the cosmos" wants to wait until it's narrowed down to two before he tries a prediction.  After mocking Goddard for an analysis he called "very poor and scanty" DiCocco placed huge significance on a trifle like Le Pen's Arabic "Part of Fortune," a mathematical point proposed by an ancient Arabic mathematician-astrologer (along with hundreds of other "parts") that DiCocco has no experience watching and which is not even considered a reliable significator of external things by those who have studied Arabic Parts.
(And as usual, he points to no examples where the P-O-F figured in other cases or election wins, but simply asserts.)
 

 
Increasingly nervous to predict, DiCocco tried to put an out into his prediction; some fail-deniability, by stating there might be "election fraud." However, this won't fly, for the purpose of an astrological prediction is to say what happens -- in this case who wins-- along with whatever factors the astrologer may see involved, in the picture, or the background such as "fraud," "media support," money, etc.

After he was wrong DiCocco, The Voice of the Cosmos who knows 'the true astrology that always predicts,' said his fail was "not a big deal whatsoever." The only one who can "make astrology great" now takes shelter with astrologers
he attacked and mocked, saying 'They were also wrong!' In two Freudian slips he says: "The show must go on" and "Now to carry on with business as usual!"
DiCocco is now getting slaughtered so badly in Comments for the two videos he had to disable comments.

Ever the slippery eel, the "Voice of the Cosmos" now claims he had faulty birth data. (How incompetent! How negligent!) Speaking of himself in the Third Person DiCocco writes:
"GianPaolo predicted Le Pen; however, due to new evidence, that prediction is null and void. BOTH candidates have faulty birth data."
No honest astrologer would affirm there are major differences between the two Le Pen charts, one at 11 am and the other 11:20 (the one DiCocco negligently used). They have the same planets-in-houses (except Pluto in 11th vs. 12th) and the same house rulers. Both candidates would have been having the same planetary transits and progressions on election day and during this period. Le Pen would have still had transiting Mercury conjunct her Saturn on election day (a giveaway: you get bad news and goodbyes then), and Macron would have had the same raft of positive transits on election day, including Jupiter all over his Pluto during this period. If anything, the 11 a.m. Le Pen chart (which DiCocco did not use), is the stronger natal chart as it features a Sun/Mercury sextile to her ascendant. There are no substantive differences that would have caused DiCocco to predict differently, as his prediction was just copycatting other astrologers in the first place. 

Freaky Fact: The Kook makes extreme attacks against Locational Astrologer Julian Lee who he calls "negligent" for having an incorrect birth year for him, though Lee sincerely tried to help him and was not paid. Notwithstanding that faulty data Lee's prediction of career improvements came true for DiCocco in California, where DiCocco acknowledges he attained the best position and pay of his life, plus went from being a nobody to being famous in a new career of astrological pundit and enfant terrible.)

 
Toilet astrology: In one of his first videos DiCocco dances around his bedroom in Pasadena with a toilet plunger while wrapped in the American flag and threatens viewers with it. Was it a sign?

 
Another alibi used by DiCocco and his groupies is "Le Pen really won." They spin DiCocco's miss with lines like: "Le Pen didn't want to win, so she threw the election by making herself unpleasant in the debate, so she really won" or "Macron didn't really win because their was fraud" etc. But the goal of the astrologer is, again, to predict "what happens" in this messy, complex world. Thus an astrologer would say: "Macron wins, through fraud, a band plays a marching tune, the weather is sunny." Or "Le Pen loses, and it was because she wanted to, a dog barks" or "Macron wins, and it's because he had money and media behind him, but he's really a body double" etc. DiCocco's goal was predict who wins, whatever might be the surrounding factors of that win.
   
Fun fact: Knowing he merely lucked out with his "big" Trump prediction, DiCocco is insecure in his use of astrology.  With the French election just two days away and feeling nervous about his prediction, he resorted to Tarot card reading (suddenly a Tarot expert):


DiCocco says his Tarot reading predicts a Le Pen win. Still got it wrong!
Will Runes be his next specialty and forte?

DiCocco Fail #3

DiCocco stated in a video in Jan of 2017:
...with all the increased talk about Russian hacking these days you can be assured that Snowden will be put in the spotlight once again soon...I believe that we're going to see a lot of talk and news about Edward Snowden during Trump's presidency"



It didn't happen.
DiCocco obviously considered this "lot of talk" about Snowden to be imminent, or as he says, "soon." His constant goal is to make predictions that come true soon and he announces them with urgency. But 2017  has now passed and Snowden was remarkably absent from the news during 2017.

Moreover Donald Trump, who made tweets about Snowden years prior to his presidency, has been very quiet about Snowden in 2017.

Meanwhile DiCocco said nothing about most news events that dominated 2017. The Kook appears to simply look for trends in the news and use logic for making his "astrology predictions," such as the "Russian hacking" thing. But that's not astrological skill. Following is some of the absurd manuscript from this video which demonstrates how DiCocco likes to 1) keep things vague, and 2) state both ends of a prediction (contradictory things) so he can somehow come  out "right" no matter what happens:

DiCocco, from his video "On the Health and Death of Edward Snowden: An Astrology Case Study"

DiCocco:
"I labeled Snowden as the Antichrist which actually you know it might be a little bit harsh okay and I apologize in advance...this is a really bad seed we have dealing with here okay...


Note: DiCocco likes labeling people in extreme ways like "antichrist" and "bad seed." He has also called astrologer Julian Lee "bad seed" and "Satanic" and worse.

...we can all expect something to develop over the next four years regarding Snowden for sure...I can tell you right now that we'll be seeing some major news about him come out over the next four years


Note:  Pretty safe to predict "something will happen over the next four years" -- isn't it.

"...and frankly his ultimate demise does not look pretty at all okay....we can see that the nature of his work is once again of a dastardly nature...he's either feeding information to foreign organizations or terrorist groups...it's also possible that he could be leaking Russian secrets out as well so in reality he's not even safe in Russia...I discussed more about his terrorist inclinations ...

Note:  Where have we seen terrorist inclinations in Edward Snowden?

"... he's not safe in any foreign country...

Note: Snowden has been safe for a long time in a foreign country.

"...(blah blah)...indicating a restriction on foreign travel this retrograde Saturn is also... (blah blah)... so we know that he's going to have a lot of problems trying to migrate or travel to any foreign country and frankly you know we've seen that before okay when he was in Hong Kong he was going to take a flight to some other country okay and I can't remember which one that is right now but he was diverted to Russia okay the US government also revoked his passport...I believe so there again we see the problems he has with traveling to other countries all right...

Note: Here DiCocco pretends to scry "travel problems" from the astrology, but he's already seen it happening in the news.

"... now speaking of health and death okay I can tell you right now that it certainly will not be pretty not at all okay and I say that because the ruler of his eighth house of death all right...in most of the cases I've seen when you have an outer planet as the ruler of the eighth house of death and it's retrograde you can expect the death to not be so peaceful okay and we know that Snowden's death won't be a pleasant one...

Note: DiCocco states he's studied lots of "deaths" and seen this aspect many times.
But he gives no examples. In fact a great many deaths occur without any big 8th House factors going on.


"...Pluto in this case indicates trauma especially when combined with Saturn okay right over here ... his health and death are very much intertwined here in a particularly nasty way...we know that a traumatic death is expected for him and his death might be prolonged or protracted, okay. It certainly won't happen like that instantaneously...and I say that because...retrograde Saturn really slows things down big time ,ok...we can see an extended death of a traumatic nature...

Note: Here DiCocco speaks out of both sides of his mouth, saying that his death would be "traumatic"  but it also "might be prolonged or protracted" These two ideas are contradictory. Below DiCocco says Snowden might be "executed," which we think of as a rapid death. So DiCocco is all over  the place, trying to cover all bases so he can't be wrong.

"...his death will be due to some kind of secret work duties some kind of undercover work that he's engaging in and obviously we know that he's doing that ok all of his hacking endeavors and intelligence leaks will undoubtedly do him in...his health will also undergo a huge sudden change... so you got to think of a huge ...unexpected Uranus change in health and this health change will be very mentally draining on him...

Note: Snowden has long been noted as looking poorly, with dark around his eyes.
So DiCocco is simply observing obvious things from photos of Snowden then posing as if he's astrologically scrying this.


...automatically I think of torture and intense interrogation alright and usually with torture and interrogation you are very emotionally traumatized okay your entire mental and emotional well-being takes a huge hit and it's no wonder that this will occur to Snowden...

Note: Here we have DiCocco doing his favorite thing:
Predicting ill things, and probably asserting the things he personally wants to be true,
for political and propaganda reasons.

...his emotional health is a huge risk here big time and we know that his emotions will come under attack from an interrogation because his moon is ...he will be interrogated and undergo extreme emotional trauma by a government agency in a behind-the-scenes environment...you can expect his body to undergo some kind of trauma...so this can indicate that there will be a military manhunt ...we know that a military organization of sorts or an intelligence agency having military capabilities will certainly be after him okay whether that's the CIA bi or KGB who knows because we also have to keep in mind that he's not safe in Russia either and we know this will be over an intelligence issue ... his death will occur very much behind the scenes and will be shielded from the public eye... he will clearly undergo tremendous trauma from a secret intelligence agency ...will it be a government entity absolutely...we know that his death will be of a very creative and secretive nature...

Here DiCocco is predicting things that will happen "behind the scenes" and "shielded from the public eye."  This gives safety to DiCocco. We can't ever really know. He can't ever be proved wrong.

"he's going to be taken out in a very creative fashion probably completely taking him by surprise..."

Note:DiCocco wants every kind of death for Snowden. And it sounds like he has MOSSAD in mind. In some parts of his rambling video he states Snowden's death will be health related:  "his health and death are very much intertwined." It will be "prolonged" and "protracted." But elsewhere he says it will be by "trauma," a "surprise"; he will be "taken out," and below, 'maybe executed.' He states all possibilities hoping he therefore can't come out wrong. In reality these are just DiCocco making death wishes for Snowden, because he doesn't like Snowden. What's actually happening here -- and this applies to much of DiCocco's dreck -- is that he is visualizing and projecting death ideas on Snowden in as many ways as possible,  for window dressing throwing around hack astrological justifications, but mainly hoping his negative affirmations will make it come true.

Keep in mind that DiCocco, the Tarot Card Reader, has long been interested in occultism and witchy techniques. He is really trying to lodge these statements against Snowden as a curse in the ether. It sounds like DiCocco is dreaming of Israel's MOSSAD throughout this video. Astrologer Julian Lee has maintained that DiCocco is an ethnic Jew, has the look and sound, and has had a brew of ethnic Jews and Israelis as Facebook fans, and that he is using astrology as a psy-op and for propaganda advantages to Israel.  Notice that he has painted Snowden as "dastardly," though many consider him a hero. DiCocco's Jewishness would explain his animus toward Snowden, because many of Snowden's leaks put Israel in a negative light. Just one headline: "Edward Snowden leaked NSA documents show U.S., Israel created Islamic State." This would also explain his extreme animus toward astrologer Julian Lee and the many vile things DiCocco says about him: Mr. Lee has long openly critiqued Jewish power and Jewish collective agendas.

"it should be relatively easy when the time comes for this secret government agency to interrogate him harshly okay maybe even to the point of execution...he's not going to go down easily okay this [factor] gives him a tremendous amount of stamina both of body and mind...

Now we've jumped from "slow/protracted" to "execution. He covers every base. DiCocco also contradicts himself first saying that Snowden would be ill  and be emotionally disturbed: "you are very emotionally traumatized okay your entire mental and emotional well-being takes a huge hit." But now he is saying "he won't die easily because he'll have great stamina. Again, DiCocco seems to be dreaming of MOSSAD.

"...he's definitely gonna go down fighting that's for sure and just to put the icing on the cake here again we can see his body and mind taking such a traumatic blow ...this is really going to be something else, a huge event carried on behind the scenes...

Note: Of course none of us will be able to know whether it was "something else,"
since it will take place in "secret" and "behind the scenes."

"Let's all stay tuned over the next four years to see what Trump will do when it comes to Snowden as well as with Russia......with all the increased talk about Russian hacking these days you can be assured that Snowden will be put in the spotlight once again soon...That's all folks I hope you found this video to be both highly educational and astrologically informative..."


It didn't happen: There was no soon-to-come spotlight on Snowden.
The rest of what DiCocco says in this video are contradictory non-statements
or descriptions of conditions the public already knows.

DiCocco Fail #5

DiCocco predicted an "attack on American soil"
to take place in "late December 2016 to early January 2017.

His phrase suggested significant aggression from another nation,
or at least a major terrorist event such as a serious bomb,
and was attended by gravity and portentous music. "Breaking News!" "Disastrous!"
The only thing DiCocco could point to was one more lone gunman incident,
common nowadays, a Jan. 6 Fort Lauderdale shooting that took 5 lives.
(Many mass shootings have higher casualties.) DiCocco stated that he got his
prediction from "the cosmos." Note how direly worded it is. "Warning the people of the United States and the world at large." It would "unfold" like a major event.
 

   The shooter-of-five was an American, and it's already forgotten today.
DiCocco insisted that this common event fulfilled his exaggerated, dramatically worded prediction. (Even though he was "four days off.") Likely, Chicago alone had more shootings that day. In the following posts from that thread, DiCocco is seen spinning that common event as validation. He digs himself in deeper to his mess by telling us to "expect a higher probability of these events" between January and mid-March 2017. 

"A higher probability" is going to occur. How about that for not committing to anything? Nobody can disprove whether a "higher probability" just passed by or didn't. The "cosmos" was too shy to say: "There will be more of these events." Or even "Expect more." And there was no increase. This site tracking shootings shows that January, Feb, and March were very average months for shootings. Where's this dramatic "attack on American soil"? The same site shows that (click the bar)
from January 6 until March 22 -- the period DiCocco specified above --
no other shooting with five or more deaths took place.
This gives 
DiCocco a foil star for a double-fail.

It may be noted that the alleged Steven Paddock/Las Vegas shooting was not predicted by DiCocco. Yet it would better fit a significant "attack on American soil." But alas, the vast majority of major national events that took place in 2017 were somehow missed by the 'world's only real astrologer' and 'voice of the cosmos."

 
5.
DiCocco made dire predictions that the US navy would suffer a serious attack
and he specified the dates of April 11 and 12 as the most likely time.
Nothing happened.

 Note the dire wording and definite implications:
"***WARNING...great danger for the US Navy abroad..
...attack on foreign government institutions...
Particularly around April 11th, 12th...
Is another attack imminent???...
To the Department of Defense: BE CAREFUL.
Raise all ships to the highest alert level allowed by international law...naval wound."


...

But nothing happened.
DrudgeReport headlines April 11  |  Drudge headlines April 12  |  Drudge headlines April 13

 
DiCocco bases his entire credibility on the fact that he predicted a Trump win,
as if this winning of a coin toss (there were only 2 real possibilities) proved greatness as an astrologer. Trump had huge crowds and Hillary was always falling over, and other astrologers predicted it before him. For example Astrologer Julian Lee, who helped DiCocco overcome his job troubles and who DiCocco continually attacks, predicted a Trump win back in July 2016. So did a few others.
DiCocco's late-in-the-game prediction, using garden variety astrological guesswork, is DiCocco's whole claim to fame, from which he hopes to build an empire selling cups and shirts that say "Make Astrology Great Again."
He appears to put a great deal of time and energy into pure marketing.


   

Though trying to build up a business by attacking other astrologers,
DiCocco has been accused of foraging for other astrologers' ideas and statements,
then presenting them as his own. This is mentioned in this blog. Julian Lee has heard DiCocco taking phrases
and ideas that Lee presented in his reading to DiCocco,
presenting them as his own knowledge on the internet.

In the statement above DiCocco says "Astrologers know that the quincunx is a lottt worse than a square."
One more bare assertion and fabrication. It would be hard to find such a statement in astrological literature. What he's doing is trying to quote Julian Lee fro his reading, not anything generally agreed by astrologers. Then he makes another original assertion about Mercury-Quincunx-Neptune, but does not tell us who called it "the ultimate lying aspect" o r where this is written. DiCocco pulls statements that have no basis out of his ass. Recently DiCocco appears to have copycatted other astrologers to make a prediction about the French election. After two other astrologers predicted Marine Le Penn would win, DiCocco mocked and abused them. A week later, with round #1 a few days away and Le Pen polling high,
DiCocco shamelessly jumped on the bandwagon and also predicted a Le Pen win.

This copycatting is even apparent in his failed "attack on American soil" prediction.
YouTube commenters pointed out that another YouTube astrologer made a similar prediction prior to his; he was purloining her stuff. At that time DiCocco acknowledged it in posts (since deleted) where he groused that another astrologer might have "misled" him. So the "cosmos" had to copy another astrologer whose prediction ended up a bust. These posts on the "attack" thread, not yet deleted, refer to DiCocco's copycat attempts at divination:
